    Год издания: 2018

    Rome, 1955 The artists are gathering together for a photograph. In one of Rome's historic villas, a party is bright with near-genius, shaded by the socialite patrons of their art. Bear Bavinsky, creator of vast, masculine, meaty canvases, is their god. Larger than life, muscular in both figure and opinion, he blazes at art criticism and burns half his paintings. He is at the centre of the picture. His wife, Natalie, edges out of the shot. From the side of the room watches little Pinch - their son.

    "So good I had to read it twice simply to figure out how he pulled it off...The novel is alternately hilarious and heart-wrenching and it's assembled like a Rubik's Cube." Each chapter is so finely wrought that it could stand alone as a memorable short story. Slowly, the separate strands become entwined...Funny, poignant, occasionally breathtaking.

    Год издания: 2014

    The Rise & Fall of Great Powers begins in a dusty bookshop. What follows is an abduction, heated political debate, glimpses into strangers’ homes, and travel around the globe. It’s a novel of curious personalities, mystery, and lots of books: volumes that the characters collect, covet, steal.

    1950 году в Риме появляется газета, плод страсти и фантазии одного мультимиллионера. Более полувека она удивляет и развлекает читателей со всех уголков света. Но вот начинается эпоха интернета, тираж газеты стремительно падает, у нее до сих пор нет собственного сайта, будущее выглядит мрачным. Однако сотрудники издания, кажется, этого не замечают. Автор некрологов имитирует страшную занятость, чтобы не работать. Главный редактор обдумывает, не возобновить ли ей роман с давним любовником. Престарелая читательница озабочена тем, чтобы прочесть все старые номера газеты, и тем самым становится пленницей прошлого. А издателя, похоже, гораздо…

    BONUS: This edition contains a The Imperfectionists discussion guide and an excerpt from Tom Rachman's The Rise & Fall of Great Powers. Set against the gorgeous backdrop of Rome, Tom Rachman’s wry, vibrant debut follows the topsy-turvy private lives of the reporters, editors, and executives of an international English language newspaper as they struggle to keep it—and themselves—afloat.
